We recently spent a week driving all over SW Virginia checking out potential places to retire. Loved some of the Roanoke outskirts, but we want to be a little higher in the mountains. We liked Blacksburg a lot, but we might want a little bit more small town feel. We weren't as impressed as we thought we would be with the several towns from Radford down to Abingdon, but maybe we haven't given them enough chance yet.

We liked the area around Floyd, but loved the area around Meadows of Dan and Fancy Gap. That was not even on our original list of places to see. For anyone familiar with the area, please let me know pros and cons. After a long time and a few trips to different parts of the Blue Ridge Mountains, we may be getting close to a decision.

We love the area. May want to look at Hillsville as well. Great town, cool history, very very beautiful. I can't think of many cons aside from being kinda far from specialized medical stuff andajor airports. If you want a slower pace of life with little to stress about environment-wise, I can't think of a better place.
